Please, Help Us, Help Her by DONATING.

"Sweet JOSIE
CHARLOTTE, NC....We were contacted by another Rescue in the Charlotte area
that had picked up as a stray the saddest, most pitiful looking Schnauzer
you have ever seen. They sent us her pics and said she was critical and
could not take her into their care, so I agreed to take her. We originally
were going to call her Louise since we had just rescued a Thelma until we
scanned her for a microchip and found one. Her Microchip showed our sweet
girl was seven years old, and her name was Josie. The number listed for
her had been disconnected and there was no way to get in touch with her
Family, so we had her taken to Carolina Veterinary Specialists in Matthews,
NC for Medical Treatment.

Josie arrived and was so lethargic that she was taken to ICU immediately
and that is where she has remained. She was emaciated with lots of
terrible sores all over her body. She had patches of hair that were missing
and did not show any indication it was going to grow back. We have sent
off a Thyroid panel and lots of other tests that we are waiting for the
results to come back. Josie's poor skin is a hot mess all over. The ER
Team has already started her on medicated baths to see if we can get her
skin to calm down, but her overall demeanor is a very depressed dog. We
do not have a clue how long this sweet pup was on her own, but it appears
for quite a while. She was covered with fleas when she came in but did
not have leaves and debris caught in her fur from wandering around outside.

Josie's eyes are in terrible shape, and she can barely see from the
infections she has. I suspect someone had her pinned up in a yard and
then when she became lethargic, that discarded her. Poor girl looks like
she is around 15 years old. It is hard to believe she is only seven. We
suspect she has a thyroid issue based on how bad her skin is. This
wonderful dog is way too young to be giving up, so we are going to do
everything possible to get her feeling better. We are hopeful once her
lab results come back, we will have a better idea of what is causing her
system to be so depressed. She has a lot more going on than being
abandoned. Until we figure it out, she is being loved and pampered by
everyone that is responsible for her care.

I will never understand anyone that has an animal and then sits around and
watches them get sick or are hurt and in terrible pain and do nothing.
All it takes is a little love and care and not letting a situation get out
of control. What could have cost a hundred dollars, in the beginning, is
now into the thousands and the animal has suffered for months. Animals are
not Throw-Away Toys. They are living, breathing beautiful creatures that
love us unconditionally.

Josie did not deserve the Life she has had. She is a sweet pup that is
scared and very sick. She does not have a clue what is going on in her
Life. She is starting to realize that we are the good people and are not
ever going to let anything bad happen to her again. Please, DONATE,
toward Josie's extensive Medical Bills. She is going to be in the Hospital
for quite a while getting better and then will come to our Rehab Facility
recovering until she can be placed in a loving home. If we cannot get
Josie stabilized, then she will come to our Facility and live out her Life
with us surrounded by people that will love and adore her, unconditionally.
